Interest rising for Maryland TE

Recruiting is beginning to pick up for Baltimore (Md.) Loyola Blakefield tight end Alec Scheetz. The 6-foot-4, 240-pounder has taken a few visits to date as interest comes in.
"I don't have any offers quite yet, but I'm getting interest from Delaware, Boston College, Maryland, Villanova, Rutgers and Princeton," he said. "I recently visited Delaware, Boston College and Harvard.
"I liked all of them. I'm leaning towards the bigger colleges, Boston College a lot. It's a beautiful school and it's a good football team with good academics too."
As college interest grows, what does Scheetz want in a school?
"Really, in addition to good athletics, I want a good solid academic program," he said. "I'm looking at going into engineering or pre-med. I really want a school that has one of those. I want solid sports and academics. I'd like to stay on the East Coast too."
Though he plays both ways, Scheetz is getting his looks more as a tight end even though he was used sparingly, eight receptions for 70-yards.
"It was a pretty tough season," he said. "I think my knowledge of the game is really good though. I don't have ground breaking speed or strength, but I play smart."
Scheetz is also getting looks for baseball as he is a first baseman and averages .270 hitting.
"I'm looking at both sports and if I can play both, that'd be great," he said. "For baseball, I'm getting interest from Delaware, Holy Cross, Boston College and others."
